Type htttp:// in your browser.
you will be asked for a username and password
enter the default given to you by your router people.
or go thro the manual for the username and pass
once on the configuration page, you should config your router as specified by your ISP.
save the configuration.
that is all you are connected to the internet, Vista will configure your lan by itself, otherwise go to network setting in control panel, and ask vista to diag the network it will configure your network setting automatically.

    Are you mentioning about sharing the broadband connection between two or more computers.

    For Vista, you have two network options, one is private network and the other public network, i can't recollect which network it should be for internet sharing on the network, but this must be configured for accessinng the internet. Try both the options, vista will configure you network for internet access. ( I think it is the public network you should select) for the network type.

    Good Luck.

    Kindly, POST back with your results.

I got this computer for christmas and I cant get it to connect to any wireless wifi system. I dont know what I'm doing wrong. Could you please give me some instructions on how to connect it to a home...

The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet

These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.


4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center

To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

    Use Incoming Wireless to Send Out Ethernet *Internet Sharing*

    Enabling ICS
    To enable ICS, on your host computer:

    1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

    2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.
    NoteThe Sharing tab will not be available if you have only one network connection.

    4. If desired, you can also select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

    5. Optionally, to allow other network users to use services running on your network, click Settings and select the services you want to allow.

    When you enable ICS, your local area network (LAN) connection gets a new static IP address and configuration, so you'll need to reestablish any TCP/IP connections between your host computer and the other network computers.
    To test your network and Internet connection, see if you can share files between computers and make sure each computer can reach a website.


    Once you have done the above, connect the Ethernet cord to the WAN/Modem port on the Linksys router and set the router to Dynamic IP. Then connect another computer to one of the LAN numbered ports on the router and they will have internet. Remember your computer MUST be on for the computers connected to the Linksys to get internet.

    Wireless modem not connecting to everything on the network

    this sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's and x box an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser that DHCP is enabled, also go to your wireless network card and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok and close window. Do the same with the Xbox in the network settings and make sure that automatically obtain ip address is highlighted and automatic DNS is set. Lastly make sure non of the pc's network setup is set in a way that other pc's connect to the internet through this computer type set up, they should all be set up using the network wizard using the 'this computer connects to the internet through a gateway' setup, which is your router, but if your laptop is Vista, then everything should have set up automatically when a connection to your router was found. Lokk in the routers DHCP clients and look to see if all your pc's and the Xbox is listed and given IP addresses.
